Bus company SA Roadlink has settled claims relating to a bus crash that killed 12 people and injured 30 others.
The accident that occurred almost four years ago was settled in the Pietermaritzburg High Court in KwaZulu-Natal.
The company says the terms of the settlements with relatives of the deceased and injured are to be kept confidential.
The driver of the bus in the crash on December 24th 2006, was acquitted of all charges against him after it was said that the rear tyre of the vehicle burst, forcing the bus out of control.
The bus was on its way from Johannesburg to Durban when it crashed into the pillar of a bridge in Pietermaritzburg.
